Five Minds for the Future 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.557

Howard Gardner’s book Five Minds for the Future deals with preparing the present generation of students for the future by perfecting not only their scholarly skills but also their personality.

Summary Of The Book

In the book, Howard Gardner elucidates on the different types of minds that the society will require in order to flourish in the imminent future. Five Minds for the Future also applies emphasis upon the kind of minds that need to be cultivated in a world where change is inevitable.

Gardner, after a lot of research, has classified minds of individuals into five different types, based on the various ways that an individual perceives, thinks and acts. They are The Disciplined Mind, The Synthesising Mind, The Creating Mind, The Respectful Mind, and The Ethical Mind.

While the first three types are concerned with intellect, the latter two deal with character. According to Gardner, these different ways of thinking have to be instilled into students by educators to provide intellectual as well as personality development. Five Minds for the Future stresses on the importance revolutionizing the system of education along with the changing times. The book calls for a more future-oriented education system as opposed to the existing system which focuses most on academic accomplishments.

Gardner highlights the need for innovative ideas and non-linear thinking to resolve highly intricate problems which will the world is currently facing and will face in the impending future. Through Five Minds for the Future, the author advises educationalists to develop the five different minds mentioned in the book by providing to students, examples of well-known figures who have portrayed such minds. 

Five Minds for the Future explains to educationalists the necessity of instilling into growing minds, the practice of both intellectual and reflective thinking, so that they grow up into a populace that is competent in facing the unseen yet complex challenges of the future.

Only for academicians.

Problem with the book is that he puts the word 'Future' in the title and gives examples from waaaaaaaaayyy back when, through out the book....except the summary, the book is of no use to anybody except people in positions of power in colleges. People who can set course curricula.The book is not on leadership. It is on changes required, in academics, and the teaching methods of academicians. Two stars dissection...
